Please send me/us your smb.conf file to take a look at.

Here is what I use (the important parts):
My server is the only server in our department so It's ok to be a 
domain master and samba does the domain logons.
Make sure every user as write rights in his own directory.
The 'logon home' parameters makes sure that the profile is create 
in the .profile directory.

Maby this helps, if not, send my your situation and smb.conf file.
